I'm having lots of trouble trying to set this up properly.

My setup is using two 2882 (2D Expanded) boxes. Box #1 is connected to MacBookPro via Firewire. Box #2 is connected to Box #1 via ADAT.

The way it's being setup:

16 Channel Input (multi-track)
16 Channel Sum Out (4 x mono, & 6 x stereo stems)

As I'm using Logic, and Aggregate Device is not great for this, I figured it'd be simplest to get extra 8 IN/OUT channels via ADAT. However, it's simply not working. I can't work out whether it's something I'm doing wrong in MIO (there's no specific instructions for setting up ADAT in/out), or if I've a technical fault.

I can get Box #1 to work fine routing 8 IN/OUT to Logic via FW.

For Box #2 - it's connected via two ADAT cables (out to in, in to out). However, using MIO Console 5 channel strips, how do I route directly from the Analogue inputs to ADAT outputs?

I've tried routing the ADAT inputs from Box #1 to FW sends. I've tried routing the DAW returns to Box #1, and out via ADAT. Nothing seems to work.

Could someone please give me a step-by-step to help me along the way?
